The Club recently took some of the members and volunteers to Granville Lodge Care Home in Shirehampton to interact with them and listen to stories from the Residents, creating a bond between the Youth Club and the Residential Care Home.
On the 24th of January, 2 members of staff and 11 young people from the Club had the pleasure of watching our very own Trustee, Steve Price, perform in the Pantomime “Mother Goose”. This was a first time experience for most of the young people and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Three of our dedicated and helpful Young People took part in a sponsored Swimathon on the 3rd of March 2019 raising money towards activities and equipment in the Club. We are very proud of their dedication and willingness to help the Club succeed. Well done.
Bristol Brunel Lions President Duncan White along with Vice President Julia O’Neill enjoyed another special evening with the children and staff of Avon Youth Club in Lawrence Weston. Their ongoing support is much appreciated by all the club members, helping with everyday running costs, purchase of sports equipment, provision of refreshments etc. Club leader Tash promised to spend the money wisely and thanked Bristol Brunel Lions for their generosity and continued support.
It was agreed at the meeting that the members of both clubs would take part in a litter pick on the 17th April starting at the Youth club and finishing at Lawrence Weston Community Farm with a picnic lunch. This will be the second such event the clubs have participated in.
Bristol Brunel Lions believe that the service provided by both Avon Youth Club and Lawrence Weston Community Farm to the local young people of the area is vital for their enjoyment, development and well being.
